Chapter Summary

This chapter explains the social meaning of sacred landscapes and how these religio-cultural flows shape social life in global society. It examines a selection of the literature to illustrate one way in which identity is constructed and transformed within the social spaces of transnational global flows, paying particular attention to religion. The ‘Parade of Nations’ illustrates a hybridization of religion, culture, and politics. It illustrates how globalization impacts upon migrants and the role that religion plays in the social spaces that are ‘betwixt and between’. Religio-cultural hybridization elaborates upon with a discussion of the origins, development, and contemporary situation of Pentecostal and charismatic movements. Pentecostalism is the term used to capture the various idioms of religious experience like dreams and visions, healing, speaking in tongues, and prophecy as expressed within Christianity.

Keywords: charismatic movements; Christianity; Parade of Nations; Pentecostalism; religion; social life; transnational global flows
